Hot Topics collection

Hot Topics is a plain language series published by LIAC about recent changes and current debates in the law.

Hot Topics online only

We have recently reviewed the collection. From 2019, Hot Topics are available online only.

Some issues are no longer available as there have been changes to the law. Current information about these topics can be found in the Law handbook, eg:

  • Content from the removed Consumer law Hot Topic can be found in the Consumers chapter of the Law handbook
  • Content from the removed Child care and protection Hot Topic can be found in the Children and young people chapter of the Law handbook

Public libraries should remove and discard all hard copy issues of Hot Topics.
